The Tipping PointWork by New Mexico Artist L. Scooter Morris 30 Mar - 28 May 2023The project I am working on is called, Tipping Point. The Sculpted Paintings in this project are based on the political issues that affect everyone. Yet, after the most recent decisions, I am expanding the premise to include the very harsh reality facing women at this time. This includes a women’s right to choose, equal pay, and simply, the right to have an equal place in the world.
Women have the distinction of weaving the world together without receiving the credit for their time, talent or ability. We toil to be accepted as equal and until recently our efforts are seen as less than any man.
Many of my paintings are seen as political images, but I strive to create work that speaks to all of our collective struggles as humans in a complicated world.
